  Cowboys | Rolando McClain not practicing    Wed Aug 20, 09:49 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (cramps) is out of practice and in the weight room Wednesday, Aug. 20. He left practice the previous day due to cramping.

Footballguys view: This is the player who might start in the middle linebacker position for the Cowboys this year. In case you're wondering, the 49ers get the Cowboys to open the season.

  Texans | Three participate in practice    Tue Aug 19, 04:17 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) and LB Brian Cushing (undisclosed) were all active for practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Another step in the right direction for Johnson and Foster, but more of a baby step than real progress. We want to see both play in the third game of the preseason this weekend to feel comfortable taking them at their 2nd and 4th round ADP.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain impresses    Sun Aug 17, 10:08 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain impressed in his first game action. "I liked what 55 did out there," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "He got some good snaps, more snaps than I thought he might get and he did real well. We knew and felt that he was good in coverage and he showed tonight that he drops back good, got a good feel for coverage out there."

Footballguys view: Someone has to make tackles in this linebacker corps or its going to be a long long year in Dallas. McClain might not be worth a pick in IDP leagues yet, but he should at least be on your waiver wire watch list.

  Jaguars | Eight don't travel with team    Thu Aug 14, 06:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny (biceps), WRs Cecil Shorts (hamstring), Allen Robinson (hamstring), Tandon Doss (ankle), Lamaar Thomas (head), CB Deion Belue (back), LB Dekoda Watson (groin) and TE Clay Harbor (calf) did not travel with the team to Chicago and will not play in tonight's preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are already one injury away from a *M*A*S*H* episode, so they won't take chances. A week of rest is helpful for any of these guys and if they miss a week, the Jags can save money on plane tickets--after all they have to pay off those pools in the stadium.

The Arizona Cardinals have signed free-agent LB Desmond Bishop (Vikings), according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have neither of their 2013 starting ILBs. As of right now, second-year LB Kevin Minter and old warhorse Larry Foote are the first-stringers, but this could be a sign that the Cardinals are looking for an upgrade there, if not at least among their depth at the position.

  Lions | Nick Fairley's weight gain responsible for demotion    Wed Aug 13, 05:58 PM

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley has reportedly added 10 pounds to his frame since the start of training camp, which has led to his demotion in favor of DT C.J. Mosley. The Lions declined to pick up Fairley's 2015 option earlier this year as a way to motivate him to show up this offseason in better shape. Mosley has looked exceptional at times with the first-team, and he rededicated himself to eating cleaner and sleeping longer in the offseason.

Footballguys view: If it's any consolation prize, years ago with the Jacksonville Jaguars Terrance Knighton was replaced by Mosley. Knighton turned his career around with a fresh start in Denver with the Broncos. Perhaps Fairley can have a similar career resurgence when he's with another team next season. The Lions did not pick up his fifth-year option, and Fairley will be allowed to explore his options in free agency.

But we are playing on Monday night (in the season opener) and it's still a little over three weeks before the game, so a lot can happen between now and then.'

  Cowboys | Want Rolando McClain to seize MLB role    Tue Aug 12, 07:19 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain is the candidate that has the best shot to win the middle linebacker job to replace LB Sean Lee (knee). McClain was slated to see a lot of work with the first-team defense until he suffered a minor leg injury. LB Bruce Carter could be relegated to a bench role, as he hasn't done much in training camp.

Footballguys view: The defense is desperate. McClain has failed to play up to his potential since coming into the league as a first-round pick in 2010. We'll see if he can finally get things on track now that he's with Cowboys.
